Need some Japan Itinerary advice

Jump to last reply

Hi! I just start planning my trip to Japan for October 13. I'm going for 12 days. I need some advice on my itinerary especially transportation-wise. We are trying to back track and start our trip south and work our way up since we are flying out of Narita. Here's what we got so far:

Day 1 - Tokyo
Day 2 - Tokyo
Day 3 - Tokyo day trip to Kamakura
Day 4 - Take the train to Hiroshima/Overnight in Hiroshima
Day 5 - Take train to Kyoto
Day 6 - Kyoto
Day 7 - Day trip to Himeji from Kyoto
Day 8 - Day trip to Nara from Kyoto
Day 9 - Takayama [stay in Ryokan]
Day 10 - Day trip to Shirakawa-go/Head back to Tokyo
Day 11 - Tokyo
Day 12 - Travel back to U.S.

Any advice? We are really trying to get as many side trips as possible.

Thanks in advance!
